West Virginia OC Jake Spavital: 'You can see Pruitt is going to turn that program around'

CHARLOTTE — West Virginia offensive coordinator Jake Spavital’s offense totaled 547 yards in a 40-14 win against Tennessee.

West Virginia had a 13-7 lead at halftime and Spavital’s offense started slow against Jeremy Pruitt’s defense early on.

“They are a solid team,” Spavital said of Tennessee following the game. “You can see that he (Pruitt) is going to turn that program around. He just needs a little more time”

Spavital said that West Virginia being a mature team played a difference in the game.

“We were a very mature team that came into this game,” he said. “Where Coach Pruitt’s at, he is very sound and a tough defense and caught us off-guard in the first half.

“If they keep playing complimentary football, it’s going to be a tough team to beat because they minimized our possessions at the beginning. Once that happens, they can run away with a lot of games.”
